Boxes filled with more than a thousand envelopes containing high school students’ addresses were left outside the shipping and receiving area in the lower level of Jorgenson Hall.
Though the envelopes didn’t contain any personal information, addresses of the students were printed on the front. The envelopes were left in Jorgenson on Saturday by admissions staff and were easily accessible to students walking by.
Amanda Cameron, who works in admission office said the envelopes contained information about Ryerson programs requests by high school students when the attended the university fair last weekend. She believes there’s nothing wrong with storing the envelopes in Jorgenson because the envelopes didn’t contain any personal information.
But the manager of the mailing room, Peter Brunner, said the envelopes shouldn’t have been left outside the shipping and receiving area over the weekend. “They [admissions] should just keep the mail until the weekend is over, and then send it to us,” he said.
The mailing room isn’t open on weekends. The boxes were to be picked up Tuesday afternoon by a postal truck.
